WWE: 6 Best Gimmicks In Wrestling Today

25 Sep


A wrestlers’ gimmick can ruin their career or shoot them into superstardom (just ask Michael McGillicutty, now known as Curtis Axel). A great gimmick can set you apart from the rest of the pack. It’s what makes you a fan favorite or the guy that everyone loves to hate. Either way, as long as you’re getting a reaction, then you’re doing your job.

When you really think about wrestling’s current state, there aren’t too many gimmicks that stand out more than others. Take Goldberg, I mean Ryback, as an example. What’s so special about his gimmick? NOTHING. He’s a bully, and a bad one at that.

Mark Henry is known as the ‘World’s strongest man’ but is he really? Of course he’s not anymore, but he still has the same moniker. Why? Because it’s easy to stick with what you know. No one likes change. Don’t get me wrong, I’m actually a big fan of Henry but his gimmick isn’t anything special, HE is.

Every member of The Shield is a champion but is their gimmick great? They’re bullies that cut bland promos and attack as one. Is that anything special or exciting? Ehhh, not anymore.

I could go on and on about guys that fall in the same category as Ryback, Henry and The Shield but it’s not their fault, it’s just how the current state of wrestling is. Gimmicks were king in the 80 s and 90 s. Now, not so much. But there still are some awesome gimmicks out there that deserve some props and that’s why you’re reading this. To support the great ones (no pun intended).

So let’s get started with the 6 best gimmicks in wrestling today…

10 More Smoking Hot Geeky Girls You Just Can’t Resist

27 Aug

Nerdy Nummies

There are just far too many sexy, nerdy, geeky and all round smart-hot chicks running around that we just couldn’t fit them all in to one list. You guys loved our original feature so much that we’ve decided to throw you all a bone and offer up even more geeky girls that drive us wild.

Sadly since writing the original piece I still spend most of my time surrounded by sweaty males. It hasn’t changed my life at all and certainly hasn’t created an increase in interest from hot, geeky women asking for my number. But maybe this time, hu? A guy can dream.

So brace yourself gents (and ladies) for the official sequel to the smash hit feature 10 Smoking Hot Geeky Girls You Just Can’t Resist aptly titled 10 More Smoking Hot Geeky Girls You Just Can’t Resist. Do you like what I did there?

But before we start let’s take a look at one lady who didn’t quite make the list but still deserves a very honourable mention.

Natalie Portman

The incredibly talented, unarguably smoking hot actress gets geek kudos for her roles in the Star Wars prequels, V for Vendetta and Thor anyway but the reason we want to give her an honourable mention in this feature is because she actually chose education over a successful acting career.

In an interview with The New York Post Portman went on record as saying:

“I’d rather be smart than a movie star.”

Portman’s High School thesis was titled ‘A Simple Method to Demonstrate the Enzymatic Production of Hydrogen from Sugar’ while at Harvard she contributed to a study on memory called ‘Frontal Lobe Activation during Object Permanence: Data from Near-Infrared Spectroscopy’. Now we’re not entirely sure what that means but one thing is for certain Natalie Portman is one switched on cookie, which in our book makes her even more attractive.

Interestingly enough Natalie Portman is also one of the only professional actors to have their very own bona fide Erd s-Bacon number due to her links with both Paul Erd s and Kevin Bacon. Now that’s cool!
